BET Calls Out Stacey Dash For Saying Channel Should Go Off The Air

(SL) – Stacey Dash has been speaking again spewing her radical beliefs and we are Americans chatter at Jada Pinkett-Smith and Spike Lee. Earlier this week Spike and Jada announced that they would be boycotting the Academy Awards for a lack of diversity and Dash blasted the two calling their actions ‘ludicrous’.

‘We have to make up our minds,’ Dash said during an appearance on Fox and Friends.

‘Either we want to have segregation or integration. And if we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET [Black Entertainment Television] and the BET Awards and the Image Awards where you’re only awarded if you’re black.’

She then added: ‘If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It’s a double standard.

Dash also called once again for an end to Black History Month. BET has responded, reminding the actress/republican that she received a check from BET after making an appearance on the popular TV series The Game.

Debra Lee, CEO of BET Networks,  said in a statement, “Through our award shows and programming we have recognized incredible talent that simply does not get recognized elsewhere.  African American contributions to American culture are countless and we cannot and should not wait for anyone to acknowledge them.”
